CASA Call on Supporters in Nationwide Fundraiser

30 November 2020

The Caring and Sharing Association are calling on their supporters to raise much-needed funds for the organisation in a series of supporter-led events. The Caring and Sharing Association (CASA) are a volunteer-led organisation, with the goal of helping those with disabilities through a wide-variety of supports and events.

As everyone knows, 2020 has been an incredibly tough year for all, including all the non-profit organisations you can think of. In that, CASA are no different. With a goal of €10,000 set for this fundraiser, that have already surpassed the €5,000 mark through the generosity of 92 donors (and counting).

As a Carmichael resident organisation, we are delighted to promote this fundraiser for CASA. Supporters of this fundraising initiative have been encouraged to ‘walk, run or roll’, with a great degree of opportunity to fundraise in whatever manner you see fit.

This fundraiser will provide vital supports for the organisation. Currently, there are 22 nationwide CASA branches, holding weekly and monthly social activities. These include musical events, dancing, bowling and cinema trips, and more. The overall aim here is to provide a base for ‘socialising, friendship and support’.

The mission statement for CASA further illustrates the vast positives from contributing to this initiative. CASA strive to work for the core values of friendship, one-to-one care, spirituality, quality and social inclusion in all that they do.

Formed in 1981 by a group of volunteers, CASA’s key purpose was to ‘enable its members to develop friendship through social events’. Once a small group of volunteers, they now have 22 groups across the country.  You can donate directly to this fundraiser by visiting the Go Fund Me page here.
